Obama camp in panic as ‘Xena’ Sarah Palin scythes through support
Times - UK ^ | September 14, 2008 | Sarah Baxter

THE high-heeled, moose-hunting governor of Alaska has sent Barack Obama’s campaign into a state of panic as support for the Democratic presidential candidate haemorrhages in the battleground states he must win to reach the White House.

Sarah Palin, 44, continued to scythe through Obama’s support among women by taunting the first potential black president for declining to choose Hillary Clinton as his running mate and by declaring that questions about juggling work and family were “kind of irrelevant” in the modern age.

The mother of five, who has been called Xena, the warrior princess, said in a television interview: “I think he’s regretting not picking [Clinton] now, I do. What determination and grit and even grace through some tough shots that were fired her way - she handled those well,” Palin said.

She presented herself as a champion of no-fuss, no-non-sense working mothers. “Of course you can be the vice-presi-dent and you can raise a family,” she said brightly. “I’m the governor and I’m raising a family.”

...The Democrat cheers that greeted the selection of veteran senator Joe Biden, 65, the chairman of the Senate foreign relations committee, as Obama’s running mate have died away.

“If we had picked Hillary Clinton, we would have saved ourselves three months of anguish over the summer,” the official said. “If we had spent the time unifying the party, we’d be in a totally different place. I’m not sure McCain would have picked Palin if Hillary was VP.”

panic and second-guessing, haha

I wonder if Joe Biden has quietly hired a food taster?

If they had picked Hillary, we’d be in a “Yo Mama” contest.

That was a brilliant move. Now if Obama does try to switch from Biden to Clinton, it will look like he’s following Palin’s suggestion.

Palin will look like the leader, while Obama a follower. Nice.

Lucy Lawless could play her. All she needs is some colored contacts and putting her hair up. What do you think folks?

From an article posted earlier.

A senior Democratic strategist, who has played a prominent role in two presidential campaigns, told The Sunday Telegraph: "These guys are on the verge of blowing the greatest gimme in the history of American politics. They're the most arrogant bunch Ive ever seen. They won't accept that they are losing and they won't listen."

We know.

"The Obama adviser said the Democratic candidate should remain true to himself. “He has to be who he is. When he was totally himself, he was doing so well."

0be's the one you want if you feel the need to vote "present".

Yo Bamma's ears are so big that the folks at SETI asked him to give it a shot and just listen.

Yo Bamma's ears are so big he puts his sweaters on by stepping into them.

“After repeated jabs from McCain, including the false charge that Obama supported sex education for kinder-garteners, ....”

Where was that charge falsified?
